We have a diverse community at Fairfields, and parents who want to support other parents, particularly when they are new to the school, and when their home language is not English. Almost half of the children at our school speak another language as well as English, and as a school we celebrate culture and diversity.
The parents listed on this page have volunteered to work with the school as contacts to support other parents who may speak the same language as them. They are happy to be contacted to help explain the school systems, routines and procedures. They are also happy to be a friendly face to help welcome you to the school community and to help to introduce you to other parents. Please use the contact information below if you would like to be linked up to one of our parent representatives for support.
